Mathematicians at the University of Malaga in Spain examine the subtleties of both the Cauch boundary for a generalized and possible non-symmetric distance, and the Gromov compactification for any, possibly incomplete, Finsler manifold. They also introduce the new Busemann compactification, relating it to the previous two completions, and give a full description of the causal boundary of any standard conformally stationary spacetime.
